The gender pay gap and measures which might reduce it rank high on the agenda of the government and the social partner organisations, as can be seen from the many initiatives that have been launched over the last few years. However, while the unions claim that voluntary programmes and initiatives have not proved successful in reducing the gender pay gap and promoting gender mainstreaming and thus call for legislative action, the employers' associations strongly oppose any mandatory measures by the government addressing issues such as pay and recruitment.
